Alright, one last pedantic Mass-centric post quibbling with Jane Swift and then I’ll let it go. Swift writes: “As a Massachusetts state senator, I was one of Mitt’s early supporters in his 1994 contested primary for the United States Senate.”
It was a contested primary, but not a very competitive one. Mitt Romney dominated at the Massachusetts Republican State Convention, winning the party’s endorsement, while only one other candidate did well enough to qualify for the primary. Romney crushed that poor guy, one John Lakian, in the primary, winning more than 80 percent of the vote.
